Anyway I am so behind with my blog unfortunately.
I will show you some things I have been up to lately.
In November I joined a jewelry course. Although the distance to reach the place where it is being held is rather long, I decided to take it because it was much much cheaper than other courses I had inquired about and it is being held by my friend Irene.
So we meet every Thursday evening for two hours. We are six students attending so it is good to be able to concentrate on what we do and have a good feedback and attention by our tutor.
Here's what I have done so far.
I admit I only deal with this during the lesson and not so much at home. Also I try not to buy new materials and try to use up beads and other things I had collected over the years.Of course I have to buy little bits and pieces and findings all the time. I guess in future I will add handmade jewelry on my etsy shop but it will take some time to do that.
So in November I learnt the techniques and made:
this brooch with wire, beads and soldering in the first lesson.
this necklace with wire and beads.
The porcelain lace stones are by Paula Valentim of Otchipotchi.
